Readers and critics have been intrigued - and disturbed - by the characters of Wuthering Heights since its publication in 1847. Heathcliff and Catherine, the tormented and enigmatic lovers at the centre of the novel, have justifiably been the focus of critical attention. Yet the novel is peopled with a large cast of idiosyncratic characters, each of whom plays a significant role in the plot. This novel, with its references to physiognomy and monomania, its interest in dreams as revelations of the unconscious mind, and its recognition of the importance of origins in character-formation, reflects important developments in the conception of character and psychology in the nineteenth century.

Emily Brontë: Sturmhöhe (Wuthering Heights) • Entspricht rund 400 Buchseiten • Neu editiert, mit aktualisierter Rechtschreibung, ohne den Charakter des Textes zu verfälschen • Voll verlinkt, und mit zusätzlichem Hypertext- Inhaltsverzeichnis • Mit einem Stammbaum der Earnshaws und Lintons, sowie einer Timeline mit den Lebensdaten der Hauptpersonen – angefertigt vom britischen Brontë-Experten Paul Thompson »Sturmhöhe« gehört zu den großen epischen Familienerzählungen, und ist in eine Reihe mit »Vom Winde verweht« oder »Doktor Schiwago« zu stellen. Die Geschichte ist so bewegend, weil sie – wie jeder dieser großen Romane – archaische menschliche Gefühle zur Triebfeder macht: Liebe, Hass, Schmerz, Sehnsucht, Ehrgeiz, Stolz. – In »Dr. Schiwago« ist es die Liebe, in »Vom Winde verweht«, sind es Sehnsucht und Stolz, doch in »Sturmhöhe« ist es das zerstörerischste aller Gefühle, der Hass. Shakespeare ́sche Züge, sagten Kritiker, habe der Roman, andere fühlen sich an die griechische Tragödie erinnert. In jedem Fall ist es ein ganz großer Wurf, der der jungen Emily Brontë (1818–1848), der literarisch bedeutsamsten der drei hochbegabten Brontë-Schwestern, hier gelang. ---- eClassica – Die Buchreihe, die Klassiker neu belebt.

Emily Brontë Appeared First In The Literary World As A Poet, But She Is Remembered Even Today For The Single Powerful Novel, Wuthering Heights, That She Composed Towards The End Of Her Life. The Novel Is A Singular One And It Stands Outside The Main Current Of Nineteenth Century Fiction. Because Of Its Peculiar Nature It Has Given Rise To Much Controversy. Some Consider It A Gothic Novel While Others Think Of It As A Novel Of Revenge. Some Others Find In It A Romantic Tale Of Languishing Love. The Dramatic Way Of Narration By Quoting The Exact Words Spoken By The Different Characters, By Mainly Two Narrators, Nelly Dean And Lockwood, Gives The Novel A Peculiar Interest. Besides, The Portrayal Of The Character Of Heathcliff, The Protagonist, Betrays A Powerful Imagination Of The Novelist. Like Coleridge, Emily Brontë Has Been Successful In Giving The Esoteric World She Has Created, A Touch Of Reality And Credibility By Making The Supernatural A Part Of The Natural. The Novel Is A Story Of Two Houses, At Wuthering Heights And Thrushcross Grange With A Vast Moorland Separating Them. Heathcliff Comes As A Disturber Of Peace In These Two Houses And The Peace Is Restored Only With His Death. It Is Not Simply A Tragic Tale Although There Are Several Deaths In It. The Novel Shows That There Are Both Good And Evil In This World And That Evil Is Ultimately Won Over By Love. Wuthering Heights Remains A Powerful Creation Of Emily Brontë S Imagination, And Because Of Her Originality And Poetic Intensity It Is Held That She Might Have Been Shakespeare S Younger Sister (Westminster Review, 1898).

Over a hundred and fifty years after its initial publication, Emily Brontë’s turbulent portrayal of the Earnshaws and the Lintons, two northern English households nearly destroyed by violent passions in the last quarter of the eighteenth century, continues to provoke and fascinate readers. Heathcliff remains one of the best-known characters in the English novel, and Catherine Earnshaw’s impossible choice between two rivals retains its appeal for contemporary readers. At the same time, the novel’s highly ambivalent representations of domesticity, its famous reticence about its characters and their actions, its formal features as a story within a story, and the mystery of Heathcliff’s origins and identity provide material for classroom discussion at every level of study. The introduction and appendices to this Broadview edition, which place Brontë’s life and novel in the context of the developing “Brontë myth,” explore the impact of industrialization on the people of Yorkshire, consider the novel’s representation of gender, and survey the ways contemporary scholarship has sought to account for Heathcliff, open up multiple contexts within which Wuthering Heights can be read, understood, and enjoyed.

Das Stürmische, Wilde und Raue der nordenglischen Moor- und Heidelandschaft hat sich tief eingeprägt in die Charaktere dieses Romans, der im Dezember 1847 erschien, ein Jahr nur, bevor Emily Brontë dreißigjährig an Schwindsucht starb. Niemand legt den von Ingrid Rein kongenial übersetzten Band aus den Händen, bevor er weiß, wie's ausgeht: "Ist Mr. Heathcliff ein Mensch? Wenn ja, ist er verrückt? Und wenn nicht, ist er ein Teufel?" Sturmhöhe ist ein dramatisches, stellenweise grausig-geniales Stück Weltliteratur.
